Sandy Pond Project

In December 2018 the Town of Sandy Creek was awarded a $320,000 grant for the Town of Sandy Creek North Sandy Pond Shoreline Restoration Project described as follows: The Town of Sandy Creek will use nature-based methods and materials to restore the shoreline of North Sandy Pond by reducing the size of a sandy shoal that partially blocks water exchange between Lake Ontario and North Sandy Pond and restoring a barrier beach. The project’s benefits include sheltering wetlands and shoreline properties, increasing shoreline resilience from storms, and improving the water quality of North Sandy Pond, including a possible decrease in harmful algal blooms.
